Finished, and adorable

I finished the bell bottoms for my niece:

spice drops front

and

spice drops side

The pattern was knitty.com's Juju, but the color reminds me of spice drops...those spicy gumdrops they sell at Walgreen's. I used US4 circs, magic loop, and about 2.5 skeins of knitpicks CotLin. The picture of the pants is after they've gone through the washer and dryer. I'm quite impressed with the CotLin.

I'm also almost done with DP's orange socks:

orangburst socks

Basically, I can't take much more of them, so I'm going to cast off after 5 more rows. Then, I'm going to make some socks for me...unless something else comes up :)

I just came here from Post-Punk Cinema Club to see who this new Shashi lover was and to say "Yay! a new Shashi lover" - and then I saw your adorable knitted pants too, which I love!I have 3 friends having babies in the next 6 months and clearly I need to start knitting.
